The face is a person's identity, and as such, people go through extreme lengths to take care of it. From expensive cremes that claim miraculous results, to risky cosmetic surgeries, people have long since desired to turn back the hands of time.

Aging is a natural process, and in time, the skin's connective tissue begins to thin and the collagen in the skin begin to break down, causing the skin to lose its elasticity. On average, those who are 30 plus years old experience wrinkles, sagging, folds, and deep creases in the face and neck regions. Thanks to developments in cosmetic procedures, the effects of aging can be stalled and unwanted features can even be reversed.

Of the various procedures available that claim to restore and renew sagging skin in the facial region, the gold thread lift procedure is one that has provided very positive results. Thread lifting is nothing new in the realm of cosmetic procedures as it has been around since the 1970s, but gold thread lifting has some differences.

Thread lifting, in general, is performed to create an artificial matrix underneath the surface of the skin. Multiple threads of stitch-like material are inserted beneath facial tissue. The goal of this process is to raise the mid-face, brow, and neck areas.

Gold thread lifting involves a gold thread and a gold-polyglycol acid thread being woven into the skin and its deep, soft tissues. This weaving is done by creating very tiny incisions (1.5 mm) in the hairline, and then passing the threads under the skin in specific locations with the use of a small needle. Introducing this foreign material into the skin prompts the body to produce new collagen and fibroblasts around the threads, thereby tightening underlying tissues in the skin. Overall, the process creates considerable improvement in the skin's tone, color, and firmness.

Gold has a record long history as a commodity and as a store of value. It has been formally a monetary media in and around the world. Gold has faced complete official demonetization long back, yet it experiences continued and renewed interest as a private or unofficial monetary medium. Even governments around the world are making greater use of gold in international financial affairs. Over time, gold has undergone three major transitions: 1. Gold was a medium of exchange in the early civilization 2. Next, an international banking system was developed around it, in which paper money was fully convertible into gold 3. This convertibility was ceased in 1971 by the then president Richard Nixon and a purely fiat money system took its place. Early civilizations equated gold with gods and rulers. Humans almost intuitively place a high value on gold, equating it......

Competition is an important instrument to gain economic efficiency and to maximize the welfare of producers and consumers (Perloff, 2009). Consumer welfare is a public interest and refers to individual benefits derived from the consumption of goods and services (Lowe, 2006). Therefore, the European Commission (EC) monitors the European Economic Area (EEA) to ensure compliance with the competition policy of the European Union (EU). Despite the EC’s desire to anticipate infringements some obstacles such as mergers, cartels and state aids still remain. The EC imposes high fines on firms that try to minimize competition in an illegal way. In September 2005 they “[…] fined thread producers from Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, France, Switzerland and the United Kingdom a total of €43.497 million for......

Lifes Thread

...The Cutting of Life’s Thread It is amazing how many things we take for granted. We make plans for the day and don't think twice about how those plans can be taken away in the blink of an eye. I never thought much about it myself, until I was faced with the shock and undeniable truth of my brother’s death. I don't think anyone really thinks about tragedy until they are actually faced with shocking news. My mom had been going to school in Maryland and staying at my Aunt Warda’s house. She had been away for two weeks and wanted to come home for the Fourth of July weekend. My mom had suggested I go back with her and visit colleges, shop, go to movies and just spend time together. I had been feeling pretty sorry for myself since Younis (my brother) had been gone, he was in Texas. I had been working as a maid and helping my dad run the house. I was getting irritated with my siblings and felt I was the only family member doing my part to help my dad. I was really excited to have a week with my mom to myself. The whole ride over, we were talking about what I wanted to do that week. Making plans and having "me time" seemed very important at the time. I woke up Tuesday morning excited for the day I was going to spend with my mom. I was sitting at the kitchen table drinking fresh coffee listening to my mom and aunt tease and joke around about how paranoid my mom was about doing well in her classes. My aunt was saying maybe I was there; she would relax a little bit and...

...old Price Forecast 2013 Predictions and Estimates from Multiple Analysts The Gold price forecast for the year 2013 has been covered by multiple analysts. Here is their consensus: While the price of Gold has a gamut of forecast ranges for 2013, most experts remain bullish on the yellow metal for the year, though some have scaled back their estimates slightly over the past few months. A compilation of their predictions are listed below. Bank of America Merrill Lynch In a December 2012 report, Bank of America Merrill Lynch stated that Gold would average $2,000 in 2013, with the metal climbing to $2,400 in 2014. “Large-scale policy easing by the U.S. Federal Reserve and European Central Bank positions Gold as a useful hedge against global macro and inflation risks taking the commodity to $2000/ oz levels”, said the bank. The bank added that, “We have a sixmonth [Gold price] target of $2000 an ounce, but see scope as well for prices to rise to $2400 an ounce by the end of 2014. These targets reflect our view that the Fed will maintain mortgage purchases until the end of 2014 and will move to buy Treasuries following the end of Operation Twist in December 2012.” BNP Paribas BNP Paribas expects Gold to average $1,865 an ounce for the year. “Market sentiment towards Gold has been much more uncertain in 2012 than was the case in previous years. Yet, we expect Gold to achieve a new record high in 2013 due to further monetary easing, less tail risk related to a breakup of the......

...contracting. The Chicago Board of Trade was the first commodity exchange in the United States of America to be opened in 1848, and is still the largest exchange as well. The futures contract was developed here in the 1860s. The New York Cotton Exchange founded in 1871 was also among few other early United States exchanges. During the Great Depression of 1933, the Commodity Exchange, Inc. was established. It was started in New York and by the merger of four smaller exchanges - the National Raw Silk Exchange, the Rubber Exchange of New York, the National Metal Exchange, and the New York Hide Exchange. India has a link with the commodities market as India is an agro based economy and is the largest consumer of gold, which provides a huge market for both Agri-commodities and gold. India has a huge spot market for all these commodities E.g. Indore has a huge market for soya, Ahmadabad for castor seeds, etc. During pre-independence period also there was a demand for these commodities. In the mid 1960’s due to war, natural calamities, etc the trade of these commodities was banned in India....

...Gold Anonymous. Metal Bulletin Monthly 418 (Oct 2005): 50-51. Abstract (summary) Pure - or 1,000 thousandths - gold is equivalent to 24 carats, but gold is generally used as an alloy because it is such a soft metal. The jewellers' terms "fine gold" and "pure gold" mean 920 and 840 thousandth alloys respectively, the balance being supplied by copper. The addition of copper produces red and pink golds, while deep yellow gold is practically 100% pure and "white gold" is often a gold alloy containing nickel and palladium.

Lifting Weights

...May 2014 Lifting Natural God-given talent can only get an athlete so far. At some point they will need to realize that hard work will take them much further than talent ever could taking them. When an athlete trains during the off-season by lifting weights it helps him or her become physically ready for the season ahead. Without pre- training, showing up on the day of tryouts and hoping to be great and being able to do well is a horrible idea. A weight-lifting program is essential for any athlete to achieve top performance. Weight lifting is important for several reasons. First and foremost it prepares an athlete’s body to endure the rigors of the physical sports. Typically athletes will experience an enhanced ability to perform their sport activities at an elevated level and also maintain a higher level of initial physical output all while being able to sustain those levels for longer periods of time. They will be able to imagine having the physical edge and upper hand on their opponent and thus being able to do whatever is wanted to do to the opponent. That one aspect of the game can completely change the whole game and how it is played. Look at all the great athletes, they all lifted weights. Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O’Neal, Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Dwayne Wade are excellent National Basketball Association examples. John Elway, Drew Brees, Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith of the National Football League are all perfect examples of weight lifting and......

...government. Gold has real value due to its beauty, usefulness, and scarcity. * With a fiat currency the government can essentially manufacture money virtually out of nowhere. Since leaving the gold standard in 1971 US currency in circulation increased from $48.6 billion to over $1 trillion dollars in 2012. Between 1971 and 2003 the entire supply of money in the United States has increased by 1,100%. Under a gold standard, new money could only be printed if a corresponding amount of gold were available to back the currency. * Since leaving the gold standard in 1971, inflation has reduced the value of the dollar, and inflated the price of oil about 32 fold. In 1973, Saudi Arabia agreed to trade oil only in dollars. This created a new international demand for the fiat dollars the Fed was now printing and as more dollars flooded the world, general inflation in oil prices followed. When on a partial gold standard in the 1950s and 1960s the nominal price of oil was stable, averaging $2.90 a barrel. By June 2008 the nominal price of oil hit $126.33 per barrel * Since gold is a finite natural material, and must be mined and processed at a significant cost, it tends to be produced at levels consistent with demand. Under a gold standard, creating more currency requires obtaining more gold, which raises golds market price and stimulates increased mining. More gold is then used to back more money until a point when currency levels are adequate, the price of gold levels out,......

The Golden Thread

...The Golden Thread "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens Compassion is the ability to feel sympathy and sorrow for another. Compassion especially shows a desire to alleviate the discomfort or suffering. In A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens, Lucie Manette demonstrates sincere compassion toward her father and Sydney Carton. Lucie’s compassion is significant because it has an impact on these characters in the novel. Because of Lucie’s compassion, characters are forced to make important decisions in order to insure her happiness. After Dr. Manette is released from prison, he faces challenges such as discomfort and confusion. When Dr. Manette is asked his name, he responds “one hundred and five, north tower” (44). Mr. Lorry asks, “Monsieur Manette, do you remember nothing of this man? Look at him. Look at me. Is there no old banker, no old business, no old servant, no old time, rising in your mind, Monsieur Manette? (45)” Later, Mr. Defarge asks, “Have you recognized him, monsieur? (45)” He doesn’t seem to recognize Mr. Lorry, or even more importantly, Lucie. Dr. Manette asks, “What is your name, my gentle angel? (47)” Lucy responds, “Kiss me, kiss me! O my dear, my dear!” Dr. Manette is detached from the world, and he needs nourishment in order to regain his conscience. Lucy holds him closer round the neck, and rocked him on her breast like a child (48). This is very ironic, because it is usually the parental figure that cares for the child. But in this case,......

Process and Thread

...allocate and schedule and the foundation of operation system architecture. (2)Process is a data structure to represent the inherent laws of dynamic system clearly and manage and schedule the run of program efficiently in the main memory of computer system. 2. (1)Thread is the minimum unit to operate and schedule in the operation system and it is the actual execution unit in the process. (2)Thread manage the file and control the communication in servers and deal with foreground and background program asynchronously. 3. The difference between process and thread are as follows: (1) The address space and other resources of different processes are independent, however, different threads share the resources in a process. (2) Process communicate with other processes under IPC, however, threads can read and write the data segment in process to communicate with each other. (3) The switch of context in thread is much faster than that in process. (4) Process is not a executable entity in a multithreaded operation system, but thread is. 4. Benefits: (1) It is easier to schedule and manage with process and thread. (2) It can be easy and efficient to achieve concurrency through threads. Process can create multiple threads to execute different parts of the same program. (3)It can develop the function of multi-processors fully and enable the concurrency of programs through the creation of multithreaded process....

Lifting the Veil

...famous case of Foss v Harbottle where members are not allowed to sue the company for its wrongdoing because the company is a person in law entirely distinct from the members of company. While saying that the principle of separate legal entity facilitates limited liability in which the debts belong to the company and not the shareholders, it also concluded that the property of the company belongs to the corporation and not the members. In short, it is trite to say that the Salomon principle could be regarded as a double-edged sword. The Concept of Lifting the Corporate Veil Undoubtedly, the doctrine of distinct legal personality is one of the most underlying principles of company law in the UK. As aforesaid, as the general principle, corporations are regarded as legal entities with rights and obligations independent of those acquired by the members. This principle is so strong that there is nearly no exception to it. “Lifting the veil of incorporation” refers to the judicially imposed exception to the Salomon principle where the courts ignored the separation of the personality of the company and the members, thus the veil of incorporation is said to be pierced. Most significantly, this holds the members of the company responsible for the corporation’s action and debts. In 1926, Benjamin Cardozo described this corner of law as “enveloped in the mists of metaphor,” and the courts have been even stricter in the following years. Most of the cases where the courts are......

Screw Thread

...1.0 TITLE Screw Thread Measurement. 2.0 OBJECTIVE To measure the Major Diameter, the Minor Diameter and the Effective Diameter of a Screw Plug Gauge using Floating Carriage Diameter Measuring Machine. 3.0 INTRODUCTION Floating carriage diameter measuring machine is an precision measuring equipment, primarily used for measuring of major, minor and effective diameters of thread gages and precision threaded components. This instrument ensures that the axis of the micrometer is maintained at 90 degrees to the axis of the screw thread under test. It consists of two slides lower and upper. The lower slide moves parallel to the thread axis whereas the upper slide moves perpendicular to the thread axis. The uppers slide also called as measuring slide carries a micrometer head and a fiducial indicator. The measuring slide or carriage floats on three balls in the V grooves of the lower slide. The thimble of the micrometer is graduated for readings of 0.002 mm and vernier scale has a least count of 0.0002mm. The fiducial indicator is a highly sensitive indicator which reduces error due to the feel of micrometer. The indicator operates at a constant pressure at null position of the pointer. It has a magnification of more than 150 times to the movement of the micrometer anvil. This helps in high degree of control and repeatability required for accurate measurements. The micrometer readings are taken with indicator points in null position. Major diameter - Major diameter......
